Parent/Carer Curriculum Information
Throughout the year we will attach overviews with more information about what your child will be learning in each curriculum area during each term. We cover a variety of exciting topics throughout the year and may ask your child to bring in items from home to support these.
This half term homework will be reading, times tables and spellings. Please also access Read theory weekly.
The focus for the times tables will be the 2, 5, 10, 3, 4, and 8 times table.
We enrich our curriculum by arranging the following:
Topic based visits.
Visits to our parish church Holy Apostles and Martyrs.
Visits to our local theatre the Floral Pavilion.
Sports competitions at local schools.
We are currently studying the wonderful book ‘Leon and the place in between’.
Year 3 – Celebrating the Mass
“In the Eucharist we receive Christ as our life and food, a promise of the eternal banquet of heaven. At the heart of the Eucharistic celebration are the bread and wine that become in reality Christ’s Body and Blood. Catholic faith adores this enduring presence of Christ not only within the celebration of the Mass but also outside it.” Religious Education Curriculum Directory
Year 4 will know why Sunday is special for Christians and will know that we come to Mass to hear the teaching of Jesus and pray to him. They will learn that in the Mass we offer thanks to God the Father for the gift of his Son and learn that during Mass the bread and wine become the body and blood of Jesus. They will learn that when we receive Holy Communion we receive Jesus and learn that Jesus is present in the Blessed Sacrament in the tabernacle. They will also learn some of the responses in the Mass and understand that Jesus died on the cross, and rose from the dead.
You could help your children by:
• talking to them about all the things we have to be thankful for
• talking to them about how Sunday is a special day for Christians
Physical Education (PE)
Our P.E day is Wednesday, please ensure your child comes in to school on Wednesday wearing their PE Kit. The PE kit includes black or navy shorts, a white T-shirt and a pair of trainers. As PE lessons will largely be held outside, your child may need something warmer (eg black or navy jogging bottoms and their school sweatshirt or cardigan).For health and safety reasons, children cannot wear jewellery for PE, so all children need to either be able to remove their earrings or they should be removed in the morning before school.
The children are expected to read independently at home on a regular basis (15 minutes per night). They should keep a record in their diary of what they have read. Please listen to them read out loud and record this in their diary. Discuss any vocabulary that they are not sure of.
Children need to be able to read and spell all of the Year 3/4 by the end of Year 4. They also need to learn any spelling patterns and rules that are taught in class and then sent home. Click the file below to see the year 3/4 spelling list and practice some of the words at home. We have also added the Year 2 spelling list that some children still need to practise.
Y3 - By the end of Y3 children are expected to know their 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10 times tables and associated division facts. Please ensure that the children keep their recall skills sharp.
